-Year 1 B 2019 - 2020

Miss McKimm

Welcome back Year 1! yes

Welcome to our class page, please check back regularly for blog updates and to see photos of the fun, exciting things going on in our class!

Well done to my class for having a great first day in year 1! It was lovely to see all of the chidren coming in looking so smart with big smiles on their faces. 

In Maths this year, we will be following a ‘ maths mastery’ approach, which aims to deepen children's understanding of maths using concrete resources. In the autumn term,  we will be working on reading and writing numbers to 10, as well as addition and subtraction including solving problems.

In English this term we will focus on 'Lizzie and the birds' and traditional tales, grammar including punctuation will be our focus. Phonics is taught daily and is a big focus in year 1.

Our first Science topic will be 'My body' and we will take part in some fun investigations linked to our 5 senses. Our Creative Curriculum this half term is ‘Changes within living memory’ and we will learn about how life has changed during the lives of our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. 


Things to remember:

In Year 1, children have two PE lessons each week. Indoor PE will be on a Thursday and children will need a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps for this lesson. Outdoor PE is on a Friday and the children will need a tracksuit and trainers. Please make sure that these kits are clearly labelled.

Children will have milk and fruit at playtime. We do recommend that your child brings in a named water bottle, which they can use throughout the day.

In Year 1, children will need to bring in their book bag everyday so that reading books and letters can be taken home safely. Your child has been given a reading book this week, along with a reading record for you to make comments and sign. Please listen to them read as often as you can in a quiet area. They should aim to change their reading book once or twice weekly. 

This week your child will also take home an orange home communication book, in order to maintain home/ school relationships and also to record the name of their library book. The library books they choose are a chance for both parent and child to share a reading experience, as the book they choose may be too difficult for them to read independently. If there is an important message that you want me to read, please write it in this book and ask your child to hand it to me, as book bags are not checked every day.

Thank you for your support,
